Member Since April 2023
I am a Human First Leadership Advocate who champions the development of workplace cultures built on authentic connection, shared vulnerability, and purpose-led performance. I came to this mission through two decades of service as an HR executive, and my lived experience of seeking to show up– and view others, as humans before titles. I have served as an HR Executive at some of the world’s most prominent companies including Indeed, Conde Nast, Match.com and others. I currently serve as a board member at PayScale, and as an HR Venture Advisor for SemperVirens Venture Capital. I am the host of the “52 Humans” vlogcast, a live weekly video podcast on the human side of workplace experiences, and my first book launched in March of 2023, "Human Beings First - Practices for Empathetic, Expressive Leadership." I enjoy much of his time speaking to– and leading workshops for, organizations, companies and teams on a variety of topics in HR and leadership. I live with my husband and their three dogs in New York.
